The purposes of this study were (1) to explore the relationship among irrational beliefs, life stress, and levels of depression in outpatients with major depression, and (2) to explore predictors of depressive patients. This study used the questionnaire inquiry. The researcher chose 200 samples of patients with major depression aged from 20 to 65 years The questionnaires contained four instruments including the Beck Depression Inventory, the Rational Behavior Inventory, the Adult Life Stress Inventory, and personal demographic questionnaires. The data were analyzed using t-test, one-way ANOVA, Pearson’s correlation, and stepwise multiple regression analysis.
The results of this study showed that the majority of patients suffered from depression at a were in moderate or severe level. The major irrational beliefs were disaster, emotion control, perfect, over concern and anxity. The major life stresses were dramatic changes in family member's health, leisure activities, and economic status. The level of depression showed a positively relation to irrational beliefs and life stress. Irrational beliefs can serve as predictors in patients with major depression.
The findings of this research suggest that psychiatric nurses need to understand the perceived degree of life stress and irrational beliefs in patients with depression. They also need to develop related therapeutic intervention to achieve the best therapeutic efficacy and practice integral nursing in caring for patients with depression.
